Decorating for Christmas

Oooh-What's in this box?Lily loves the Nativity SetLily decorates the tree
Floyd is not sure he likes the Nativity set- it's invading his space.
On Friday we brought out all of our Christmas Decorations and spent the day decorating. We needed a few things and actually braved Target- which didn't turn out to be so bad. Lily picked out a small sand filled toy- then decided at the last minute she wanted another Elephant instead. I put the little sand toy in the cart (without her seeing), thinking it would be a good one to put in her stocking. It was not meant to be however since the cashier (off all the things we got) couldn't get that one to scan. I was trying to distract Lily so she wouldn't see but it didn't work. She was super excited to get two toys that day! What luck! They were both only dollar or two each- but really- out of everything in the cart the one item I'm trying to be covert about is the one that won't scan. Sheesh. Anyway. Target wasn't too busy and we got what we needed. Now the countdown begins...

25 days until Christmas!

Lily: Mommy what kind of day is it?
Mommy: What do you mean?
Lily: Is it still Turkey day?
Mommy: Nope- Turkey day is over. Next...Christmas is coming.
Lily: But where is Christmas?

Lily: I have an enormously huge butt...heheeehhee. I'm hilarious.
Lily: Oh Floyd- you little meatball!
